Bringing Exploration to Life for Learners

At National Geographic, we believe in the power of exploration, wonder, and storytelling to change the world.

To support educators and families and to keep young minds engaged this summer, we are pleased to share our first-ever National Geographic Summer Learning Series. Over the course of eight weeks, National Geographic will offer unique opportunities for young people to stay engaged in meaningful learning, ignite their spirit of exploration, and connect with others. Each week, virtually visit a different part of the world and learn about its geographic features, population, climate, ecology, biodiversity, culture, history and more.

Starting the week of June 15th, Explorer Classroom has a new schedule. Join us on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The live video events, streamed on YouTube, connect young people with National Geographic Explorers—leading scientists, researchers, educators and storytellers—as they share their stories and experiences from the field. 

Events are free and open to the public. Register for a chance at one of six on-camera spots to ask Explorers your questions face to face!
